Thinks that help mpg.
Change air filter, engine needs oxygen.
If using air conditioner, try with it turned off?
Oil change helps if has not been done.
Air in the tires help with mpg.
Tune-up( spark plugs,etc.

Hi, first I would get the car scanned at your local parts chain. If the light is not on when they scan it, ask them to check the history for a stored trouble code. I'll wait to hear about the code. Here are a couple things that can affect mileage: torn fuel pressure regulator diaphram, cam position sensor on the fritz, MAP sensor on the fritz. The regulator is on top of the engine at the end of the fuel rail, as shown in the picture below. You can easily check the regulator by pulling the vacuum hose off the top, plugging the hose with a golf tee, and starting the car to see if fuel comes out of the vacuum port of the regulator. If it does, replace the regulator. Let's wait to see if you get a code before checking the sensors. OK?

After installing the after market radio, the trip meter and average mpg resets.While installing this after market radio, if the battery was completely disconnected, then this problem occurs.When the battery is disconnected, the vehicle computer( also called ecm) looses all its settings/memory. Your average MPG should be back to normal next time you fill up.----------Also there is one more reset procedure, try this.Only disconnect the negative battery terminal of car.Let it remain unplugged for 30 minutes, then reconnect the battery terminal, this resets internal system.Then check if same problem occurs or it gets solved.If the same problem is seen then,If the trip meter and average mpg resets automatically after radio was installed, then it can be any of the radio wire getting connected to any other live wire causing the issue. Disconnect the radio wiring connection from dash and then check.If the problem, solves then, Check the radio wiring, if any wire is got crimped and cut, then insulate that wire and reconnect radio wirings as it were before.In some cars, it requires radio code, if you disconnect and reconnect radio.So take care you have your radio codes handy, before doing this.If you dont have code, then check the radio manual, which mostly comes with radio installation kit.On first or last page of manual , the radio code is mentioned.If you still do not get code, then get it from the store, from where you bought, the radio.Because with code, it will be difficult to make the radio work, after you reconnect.--------
Try this possibilities, this should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
